What can I do in Bàscara and its holiday cottages?

A town with a lot of history. This is Bàscara, a municipality in the Alt Empordà, nestled right on the border with the Baix Empordà, which includes the towns of Calabuig, les Roques and Orriols. An ideal town for lovers of cultural tourism and nature that also has one of the most popular living nativity scenes in the province of Girona.

The history of Bàscara and its surroundings

At least since the beginning of the 9th century, the town of Bàscara was the possession of the bishops of Girona. The first document in which it is mentioned is from the year 817, following a trial in which the boundaries of the Baschara villa were set. Its situation as a fortified town on the main road from Girona to France accentuated its strategic importance. In fact, in 1675, Bàscara was taken by the French, who established a base camp there for the siege of Girona. During the sieges of 1808 and 1809, French troops reoccupied the town until, at the end of the war, General Suchet blew up the fortifications.

So, if you're staying in a holiday cottages in Bàscara, you can't miss the historic site of the town, with the walls and the remains of the episcopal castle or the church of Sant Iscle, declared Cultural Assets of National Interest. Another must-see are the remains of the priory of Sant Nicolau de Calabuig and the church of Sant Feliu de Calabuig. Without forgetting the castle-palace of Orriols, a building from the 16th-17th centuries with a Renaissance facade that is worth seeing.

Walk around Bàscara

If you like hiking and are lovers of active tourism, you're in luck. You can go on excursions in the vicinity of the Fluvià river and discover the natural springs and caves in the area. In addition, one of the two sections of the Way of St. James on its way through Catalonia, passes through Bàscara. The route has two variants that converge in Medinyà: you can go through Orriols, Viladasens and Cervià de Ter or through Vilademuls and Terradelles. Both options allow you to get to know small agricultural and livestock villages.

Incredible weekend with friends

The pictures don't do justice, it's even better! We have been very comfortable during the weekend we spent at the house. It's a shame that in February we weren't able to take advantage of the pool, we'll have to do it again in the summer!

Great house and very quiet environment

We spent a weekend three couples with two children and we enjoyed it very much. The house is very spacious and does not lack anything. Everything is in perfect condition and very clean. The garden area is ideal with a barbecue, table, swimming pool and hammocks. And the environment is very quiet. In addition, Laura is very kind and attentive. Without a doubt, we will repeat. Thanks for everything.
